EarthLink (which uses AT&T’s network infrastructure) also has 2,000 Mbps and 5,000 Mbps speeds on fiber plans.

What are the fiber internet providers in Dallas?

AT&T, EarthLink, Frontier, and Optimum all provide fiber internet in parts of Dallas. Fiber internet is less widely available compared to other internet types, so you may only find one or two of these providers in your neighborhood. But we recommend going for fiber internet if you can get it because it’s incredibly fast and cost-effective.

Fiber internet providers in Dallas

  • AT&T — fiber speeds up to 5,000 Mbps
  • EarthLink — fiber speeds up to 5,000 Mbps
  • Frontier — fiber speeds up to 5,000 Mbps
  • Optimum — fiber speeds up to 8,000 Mbps

Dallas residential internet coverage

Dallas, Fort Worth, and many of the area’s suburbs are covered by AT&T, Optimum, and Spectrum. But you may find you have a few more internet providers to choose from depending on which neighborhood or suburb you live in.

Fort Worth

(Arlington Heights, Crestwood, Linwood, Monticello, Ridgmar, and Westover Hills)

Along with AT&T and Spectrum, certain neighborhoods in Fort Worth can get their fill of all things internet with Windstream.

 

Dallas

(North Dallas and Northwest Dallas)

If you call North or Northwest Dallas home, you’ve got a choice between Windstream, AT&T, and Spectrum.

 

Dallas–Fort Worth Suburbs

(Allen, Denton, Frisco, Garland, Irving, Plano, and Richardson)

AT&T, Spectrum, and Frontier cover this region. However, Frontier doesn’t extend its service to downtown Dallas or Fort Worth.

 

Areas East of Dallas

AT&T, Frontier, and Optimum are available in Rockwall and Terrell.

AT&T is typically the lowest-priced option in this area. If you opt for its DSL plan, you can get speeds up to 100 Mbps, but we’d recommend fiber if you can get it—a speed of 300 Mbps will be perfect for a mid-sized household. Frontier gives you a two-year price guarantee, so if you plan on calling the great state of Texas home for a while, there’s no need to worry about price hikes.

 

Highest-rated internet service providers in Dallas

Of all the internet service providers (ISPs) available in the DFW area, T-Mobile ranked highest for overall customer satisfaction in our customer satisfaction survey. The provider has gotten top ratings in our survey for critical subcategories too, namely speed, price, and customer service.

AT&T also ranked well in our analysis of national providers, coming in second for price and speed. Spectrum doesn’t rate as high but still gets above-average ratings across the board. Long story short, Texans living in Dallas have a lot of well-rated internet options to choose from.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is Spectrum internet? And how fast is it?

Spectrum Internet® with speeds up to 300 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary) costs $49.99 per month for 12 months. Spectrum also offers two other plans, with the highest speeds reaching up to 1,000 Mbps for $89.99 per month for 12 months.

How do I change my Frontier Wi-Fi password?

To change your Frontier Wi-Fi password, look for your network name (SSID) and password on the back, side, or bottom of your Frontier router. Once you have that, follow these steps:

  1. Depending on which brand of router you have, you’ll have a special web address you can use to access your router’s settings. (To find this, just Google the brand of router plus “router login.” (For example, “arris router login” would be your search if you have an ARRIS router.)
  2. Enter the IP address for your router’s dashboard and go to the wireless/Wi-Fi setup section.
  3. Change your password and be sure to save it. This is also where you can change the name of your wireless network if you like.
How can I use the internet without a provider?

Go to a public library, Walmart, a coffee shop—there are plenty of places that provide free Wi-Fi access.

What internet service is in the Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) area?

AT&T, Frontier, and Optimum are the largest internet providers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Rise Broadband, EarthLink, Spectrum, and Windstream are also available in the area but are less widespread.

If you don’t have access to landline internet, Viasat and HughesNet are your two satellite internet options.

What is AT&T Fiber?

AT&T Fiber is fiber-optic internet that provides faster download and upload speeds than cable or DSL. While fiber internet availability is limited, you can find it in Dallas and Fort Worth. We suggest fiber for its symmetrical upload and download speeds.

WiFi is great but always have the tendency to cut off around 11pm -12 am I don’t know why but it’s an issue especially when you’re gaming it’s really frustrating when you play competitive FPS.

Honestly the worst service ever. They have outages every week now they cant fix it the internet stays gone for over 4 hours and its truly ridiculous. I cant finish my work or do anything because of how long it takes them to fix a constant mistake. They definitely do not sell what they put out there. The service is weak and they cant even give you an estimated time. Its so disappointing.

Unreliable internet service with almost weekly outages. There are almost daily brief outages and expect once a month the service will be down for more than 2 hours.
